Man United beat Brighton while Man City brushed aside Huddersfield with ease. Here are the standout stats from the latest round.

Arsenal's record against the top six is improves

The clash with Chelsea on Saturday was a must-win game for the Gunners and their top-four hopes, and win they did. The 2-0 victory brought them within three points of the Blues and saw them surpass last season's torrid record against their fellow top six.

Koscielny makes history in that Emirates Stadium win

Ruthless Man City reach 100-goal mark

A far more impressive goalscoring feat was reached by Man City on Sunday. They beat Huddersfield 3-0 and became the first team in Europe's top five leagues to reach the 100 goals mark across all competitions.

Salah reaches half-century of goals

Salah's brace in the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace saw him reach the 50-goal mark in the Premier League. The Egyptian matched the record of a former deadly Liverpool attacker along the way.

Solskjaer's start at Man United has just gotten better, as the Norwegian has written his name in history by becoming the first Red Devils boss to win his first six games in the Premier League. He's also only the third boss to achieve this feat in the English top-flight.

Jota and that 4-3 win over Leicester

Round 23 of the Premier League kicked off with a banger, with Wolves beating Leicester 4-3 thanks to a stoppage-time strike from Diogo Jota. The Portuguese ace bagged a hat-trick in that win, becoming the first Wolves player to pull off a three-goal haul in the top-flight in almost 42 years.
